Specifications

Van's Aircraft RV14/14a

  • The RV-14 is the newest airplane from Van’s Aircraft, Inc. 

 

  • It continues and improves on the legacy of the most successful side-by-side two-seat kit aircraft in history.

 



  • A 210 hp Lycoming IO-390 lives under the graceful cowl and supplies plenty of power.



  • The RV-14 is a sport touring airplane that handles basic aerobatic manoeuvres easily and gracefully.



  • The upright seating position and large bubble canopy provide superb visibility in all directions.



  • The wide cabin and large instrument panel give the occupants lots of room and lots of information.



  • The large cabin is truly roomy with a tip–forward canopy that allows it to open wide for entry and loading baggage.

 

  • The relatively long wing uses the proprietary airfoil that’s proved so successful on the RV-10.

 

  • The wing is constant-chord and constant thickness, making it completely predictable in flight.



  • Big slotted flaps keep landing speeds low.



  • The RV-14 cabin accommodates  full-sized adults — in fact, the basic idea was to provide RV-10 room and comfort in a two-seat airplane.
